Practice Name: 4babyandyou
Hi, my name is Jan Rourke. I have lived and worked with families on the beautiful Central Coast, NSW for over 20 years while raising my wonderful son here.
I am a Registered Nurse, Midwife and Child and Family Health Nurse. I also hold a Bachelor of Counselling, Diploma in Relationship Counselling, and Certificate in Clinical Hypnotherapy. I am half way through a Graduate Certificate in Perinatal and Infant Mental Health and recently completed infant massage and Hypnobirthing training. As you may tell from this list, I am passionate about empowering and supporting families.
I chose to undertake Hypnobirthing training as I have witnessed the impact of a negative birth experience on the mental, physical and relationship health of birthing families and have also observed the lifelong empowerment that can occur when the birthing experience is a positive one.
I believe Hypnobirthing offers the opportunity for women and their families to strengthen and/or develop the skills to know and trust themselves, communicate their needs clearly and achieve a happy and peaceful birth experience.
With this beautiful beginning the family is off to the very best start.

My name is Stacey and I’m a multi-tasking mum, Childbirth Educator & Pregnancy Yoga teacher.
I’ve always been fascinated by the mind-body connection, but it wasn’t until the Hypnobirth of my own son that I realised just how much influence we can actually have on our experience of birth.
I truly believe that childbirth can be one of the most positive, empowering and inspiring moments of our lives. It just takes the right education, a practitioner you can trust and a bit of practice – all of which I aim to provide in my classes.
I love helping women discover just how incredible their body really is, and watching their fears disappear as their confidence grows.
Our classes are fun, supportive and extremely practical. Most couples leave feeling excited and pumped for the challenge ahead.

Hi, my name is Rebecca. I am a Midwife, a Registered Nurse, fertility nurse and a Hypnobirthing Australia Practitioner. I am a mother of two beautiful cheeky children, who love to keep me on my toes!
I have always had a deep passion for childbirth education and supporting women and their families. My aim is to help mothers achieve a positive experience during pregnancy, on the day of the birth and beyond.
I believe that when a mother has the knowledge, is well supported, in the right environment, and feels empowered within herself, then she will birth calmly and with confidence.

Practice Name: Birth2Life
Locations Serviced: Sutherland Shire
I am a passionate Childbirth educator and qualified Hypnotherapist.
Growing up with a terrified perception of birth, it was a breath of fresh air when I found Hypnobirthing. It changed my whole world!
I came across the idea when I first begun my studies in clinical hypnotherapy. Learning how the mind affects the body made so much sense to me and was a powerful life changer. Especially when it came to birth. Could how we feel and think about birth really determine how we experienced birth? Absolutely!
I went on to learn more about how eliminating fear and using self hypnosis can create amazing and positive outcomes in natural conception and childbirth.
It wasn’t until my very first Hypnobirthing couple birthed their first child that I really started to believe the positive affects of Hypnobirthing. The Mum had to alert her midwife that her baby’s head was out! The midwife had no idea she was that far along- by looking at her calm, happy state. No intervention, no stitches. Just a happy little hypnobub!
That was when I truly fell in love with teaching women how to use their natural instincts to birth their babies in a calm and peaceful way.
Every woman and their birth companion deserve the best, happiest and memorable experience of bringing their little person into the world. It is something we and our bubs remember forever. By preparing mentally and emotionally for your birth, you can ensure that you are as confident, ready and excited as can be for this very special event in your life!

Practice Name: Baby and U
Servicing: Wollongong (NSW)
My name is Sarah Evans, I am a mother of 4 children as well as a registered midwife, prenatal yoga instructor, childbirth educator, hypnobirthing facilitator, lactation consultant and baby massage instructor. In my spare time I love to go to the beach to run or relax. Born in the UK, I had my children in Ireland (some in hospital and some at home). We emigrated to Australia in 2012, living at first in Canberra but moving to beautiful Wollongong in 2014. My draw to my current life filled with bumps and babies comes from having my first baby in a country I had only just moved to and not knowing where to turn for knowledge and support, from that need I have become passionate about women having the best experience possible every step of their journey into motherhood, making that knowledge and support easily accessible. I believe it moulds the person we become – not just as a mother but as a woman.
Practice Name: Lotus Patch
Servicing: Woolongong & surrounds (NSW)
My vision is to equip women and their partners in the Illawarra and surrounds with the knowledge and skills needed to make informed decisions around the birthing process. With this knowledge and confidence you will be able to achieve the outcome you desire and deserve – a positive, empowering and calm birthing experience.
I live in Wollongong on the south coast of NSW with my young family. I am also a certified mediation teacher, paediatric massage consultant and teach key word sign as a communication aid for people living with the differently abled, the very young and the very old. I am also a Certified Infant Massage Instructor with the International Association of Infant Massage.
I have previous experience as a research scientist and forensic practitioner and possess a number of management qualifications and degrees in various sciences.
After a challenging emergency induction with my son I was able to choose differently for the birth of my daughter. With my daughter, there was time to employ my meditation training to have a natural, intervention-free, pain-free birth. Hypnobirthing teaches how to achieve this without the years of mediation practice.
I run group classes in Wollongong with evening and weekend options. Private sessions are also available by appointment.
